Church joins 80 couples

It was a day of joy for parishioners of St. Sylvester Catholic Church, New Nyanya in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State as 80 couples exchanged marital vows on Saturday.

The ceremony, which was officiated over by the Catholic Bishop of Lafia Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Mathew Audu, was the first in the history of the church, a statement by the Public Relations of the Church, Ewache Ajefu, said on Sunday.

It stated that the marriage ceremony and the Sacrament of Confirmation put together by the Parish Priest of the church, Rev. Fr. Lawrence Anyembugu, were part of the activities lined up for first pastoral visit of the bishop to the Independent Mission.

The Bishop admonished the couples to clothe themselves with the love of Christ in order to have sustainable marriage life, stressing that marriage without love was meaningless.[sgmb id=”1″]
